Unoriginal predictable Hollywood plot, and yet I laughed
22 April 1999 | by (Vancouver, BC) – See all my reviews

Lost and Found: boy meets girl, boy wants girl, boy kidnaps girl's dog to get close to her, but cheating ex-fiance who wants girl back is determined to foil boy. Amazingly enough this is the actual plot (there is a sub-plot involving a struggling restaurant and a lost ring…). This movie is pure Hollywood formula, with very little originality and several noticeable lulls. What is even more amazing is that this movie is actually funny.

In his first solo film outing David Spade does not ask us to make a big leap of faith -Dylan Ramses could have been any character from his SNL days, or Dennis from Just Shoot Me. This translates into some snappy, sarcastic, and funny dialogue. Sophia Marceau as Lila Dubois is gorgeous and vulnerable when she needs to be - exactly what is expected of her. Jon Lovitz also adds a few laughs as a vet with special talents.

If you are in for some light humor, without violence, coarse language and nudity (okay, one male behind) this movie may be for you. But hold off until Tuesday night, or better yet, wait the three weeks it will take to move to the second run theaters (of course there's always video).
